Mount Lovcen

Mount Lovcen is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 1.675m (5,495ft) above the sea level located in the south-western part of Montenegro.

Located in the rocky region of the Dinaric Alps, the road to the summit is mostly gravel and rocky, very windy and full of turns. The landscape changes after every curve and there are many. The road is windy, but worth doing. At the summit there are some communication towers.
The road is very steep. Starting from the scenic P1 road (at 943 meters above the sea level), the ascent is 10.9 km long. Over this distance, the elevation gain is 732 meters. The average gradient is 6,71%. The weather on this zone is harsh and highly unpredictable and it does not take much time for the bright sun shine to change over to moderate to heavy snow fall. If you’re planning on hiking, come prepared as the temperature is on average 10ºC cooler than on the coast and Lovćen’s prone to sudden changes in summer.
The road encompasses miles of stunning views through twisty hair pin corners, high elevations and steep grades. View from Lovćen from all sides leaves an unrepeatable and unforgettable visual impression. Places that offer such distant and unrepeatable views are numerous: Jezerski vrh, Štirovnik, old road Krstac-Ivanova korita, Austrian strategic roads that lead to the mountain tops, Kotor serpentines – specific projecting and construction phenomenon. Exposed to the steep Lovćen slope and the Bay of Boka Kotortska – serpentines are an unrepeatable experience.
